Senior students at NBS are eligible for a number of dance and academic awards. Academic awards are announced at the annual Graduation ceremony in June. Dance awards may be announced throughout the year as well as at the Graduation Ceremony.
Peter Dwyer Award
Five prizes are given annually to PBP students in honour of the memory of Peter Dwyer, a key force in founding and developing the Canada Council. While Peter Dwyer was a firm believer that all human beings deserve equal respect, he also was unafraid to challenge the notion that each individual is equal in their abilities and openly acknowledged and celebrated those most gifted in the arts.
The 2017 awards were given to Alexi Skinner, Hannah Galway, Siphe November, Ryan Tomas and Daina Zolty.
The 2016 awards were given to William Tessier-Legault, Sarah Branch, Reo Mizuno, Masha Shcherbyna and Teagan Richman Taylor.
